Visited in August 2012 for the third time and the Cretan Malia Park was as superb as always! Plenty of loungers, goodfood and pristine pools. We have always stayed half board which has meant that we often have lunch at the pool bar. Portions here are very good so you are able to share a sandwich etc between two quite easily if you wish.
My one gripe would be that sometimes salad dishes had meat (ham, mostly) in unnecessarily and this was not listed as ingredients on the food labels - as a vegetarian i found this a bit annoying.
The entertainment isn't great but seemed to draw a fairly big crowd each night. Boules on the beach was always fun. There is a lovely bar down the road called Violets (down the hotel driveway, turn left and walk straight for approx. 3 minutes - the bar is on your right). Drinks are more reasonably priced and the service is relaxed and friendly - excellent.
Whilst this hotel is child friendly I wouldn't recommend it for families with young children.
I have read some reviews in which holidaymakers say they didn't enjoy Thomson's Spinalonga trip - I found it very enjoyable (I enjoyed it so much we have done this twice). The 4x4 jeep trip is also very good.
I particularly enjoyed the cat cafe situated outside the front of the hotel!
